Recently, I installed WordPress on my local machine using WAMP.
While accessing PHPMyAdmin I ran into an issue that I didn’t encounter before.
When I tried to log in to the PHPMyAdmin following error occurred:
Failed to set a session cookie. Maybe you are using HTTP instead of HTTPS to access phpMyAdmin
I read some posts on Stackoverflow on how to solve this error. There was a solution that recommended trying to use incognito mode. I was able to log in to the PHPMyAdmin panel with this trick. But I wanted to use Chrome in the normal mode as I cannot work in incognito mode for my projects.
Hence, the following solution worked for me:
Removing the “Torrent Scanner” Chrome extension.’
Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to resolve your issue with the above solution:
- Open Chrome.
- Click on the three vertical dots at the top right.
- Go to More Tools>>Extensions.
- Check if you have the “Torrent Scanner” extension installed.
- Disable it.
- Now try logging in to the PHPMyAdmin panel.
Hope this solution helps resolve your PHPMyAdmin login problem too.
